The Textfiles audio collection is a varied set of audio files collected by Jason Scott, curator of textfiles.com. These are recordings about and from the era of the domination of ASCII and Dial-up Bulletin Board Systems (roughly the 1970s through the 1990s, with examples far before and after that).

Over the ensuing years, the goals of the website have expanded as more and more artifacts have become available.
